Hels Sheridan's Sunday stamper - Blackbird

this card is for Hels Sheridans Sunday stamper challenge . Join in here
There are some lovely projects and tutorials on there too.
Anyway, I am on a very large long task of a total (gradual ) clean up and clear out of my craft room.
So this is my Laura Ashley stash used here, on the basis of if I want it enough to make a card then I'll keep it & I do love it, very pretty collection !

On some mid grey card I pasted on madame payroud tissue paper in top right and bottom left
Which I inked in pink and dark grey.
I tore and pasted on some papers from the Trimcraft Laura Ashley range on the other corners. 
I stamped the Laura Ashley butterflies on all sides with a nice new Black soot Tim Holtz ink pad.
I used a square Doiley in the centre, also inked , the centre is a lovely new die
From DoCrafts , see photo below, this was cut out in a pale grey with some cream
Acrylic paint brushed around randomly as was the sides of the grey card.
I threaded some black/white bakers twine through the holes and tied it into a bow.
The centre dahlia is also a Laura Ashley stamp, stamped and embossed in pink.
The bird is a 3d sticker from the same range.& the funky buttons too.
